13 of October's Most Hotly Anticipated Returning Television Characters
***Spoiler Warning: Spoilerish tidbits may follow each photo, so if you’re not caught up, don’t read the text.***
1 & 2. Alison Bailey and Noah Solloway, The Affair, Returns October 4th
Sure, they had an icky, icky affair, but we need to see what things are like between these two now that they’re living together. Oh, and there’s that nasty business of a murder, and Noah’s arrest.
3 & 4. Kevin Garvey and Nora Durst, The Leftovers, Returns October 4th
Will they get back together? I’m not sure I care much about that, but I like both these characters individually. Let me inside your brains.
5. Liz Taylor, American Horror Story: Hotel, Returns October 7th
Technically, he’s more returning actor than character, but Denis O’Hare on AHS is basically a variation on his Grand-Mothereffer-You-Can’t-Ignore-Me theme, and he’s always brilliant. I *swore* up, down and sideways I would not watch this show again, but Gaga! — the whole phenomenal cast — and a promised return to the horror part of AHS demands at least checking out the first episode.
6. Oliver Queen, Arrow, Returns October 7th
I don’t need to say anything here, right?
7, 8, 9, 10 & 11. Morgan Jones, Daryl Dixon, Carol Peletier, Michonne, Rick Grimes, The Walking Dead, Returns October 11th
Whether or not it’s been officially announced, it looks like Lennie James (from his imdb page) is a regular. Can I get a ‘Hallelujah!”? Take anyone else you want, but this core group is TWD’s heart and soul, and I can’t live without a one of them. Get it together, Grimes.
12. Lou Solverson, Fargo, Returns October 12th
Through the magic of television time travel, we’ll get to meet a younger version of Molly’s dad, and I can’t think of a more perfect actor to take over where Keith Carradine left off.
13. Raymond Reddington, The Blacklist, Returns October 1st
I stopped watching during the first season, but Spader and his character are that good, I might just have to stop by and see what’s happening with Red. Is that chick still too annoying to bear?
